Why as a handyman am I being asked to provide a Contractors Board license number?
During the completion of the Common Business Registration, you may be asked to provide a Contractors Board license number if you have selected a construction industry code.
Whether a handyman would be required to obtain a contractors license depends upon the scope of work being performed. NRS 624.031 sets forth exemptions from licensure and provides the following concerning certain types of work that a handyman might perform:
5. Any work to repair or maintain property the value of which is less than $1,000, including labor and materials, unless:
(a) A building permit is required to perform the work;
(b) The work is of a type performed by a plumbing, electrical, refrigeration, heating or air-conditioning contractor;
(c) The work is of a type performed by a contractor licensed in a classification prescribed by the Board that significantly affects the health, safety and welfare of members of the general public;
(d) The work is performed as a part of a larger project:
(1) The value of which is $500 or more; or
(2) For which contracts of less than $500 have been awarded to evade the provisions of this chapter; or
(e) The work is performed by a person who is licensed pursuant to this chapter or by an employee of that person.
Work that does not fall within the parameters of the exemption would require licensure.
